I have stayed at the Inn of the Governors several times, but not for several years, until this month. There used to be a wonderful restaurant, but now there is only a breakfast buffet and bar food. That was disappointing. The hotel is beautiful, and the staff is friendly and helpful. We were on the lowest level and had great... More

Nice hotel near or within walking distance of many shops and restaurants. Small area to park but never had trouble finding a place to park. Room service was good. Helpful and friendly staff. If I ever go back to Santa Fe I will definitely stay here again!

I stayed here about 5 years ago with some girlfriends and had a great time, so when when my husband and I decided to stay in Santa Fe with our kids, I just booked it again (go with what you know!). The major positives of this hotel are still the same...it had a great location near everything in the historic... More

We love the Inn of the Governor's. They are putting in a new pool which will be great. We also love the free parking and the hot breakfast being included. Staff is wonderful. The Del Charro bar and restaurant is always fun. Location is also perfect. I think it is time to put in new mattresses however. That is the... More

As others have mentioned, the parking is a little tight but this place is in a great location. We had a standard king room which was small, but very well appointed. Everything was clean and the bed was comfy. They thought of every detail including a nightlight in the bathroom. I like that robes were provided and the toiletries in... More

Always a "go to" for accommodations in Santa Fe. Perfectly located a block off the square, free parking, and walking distance to all the great restaurants, bars, and shopping on and around the center of town. Rooms are generous and comfortable. Can usually get a decent room rate if you plan ahead. A nice bar with a personality and specialty... More

I was impressed with the reviews of Inn of the Governors on TripAdvisor and then two people I know, who don't know each other, both said they stayed here and loved it. We booked by calling the hotel directly. We received the 50th Anniversary special listed on their web site, so the 4th night was only $50. What a great... More

Our first trip to Santa Fe and this hotel easily made our trip. It is centrally located and staffed with great people. The included breakfast is delicious and the hotel restaurant attracts tourists and locals as well and is a good value.

Great location, beautifully maintained. Good parking facilities. Excellent staff, especially 'Ken' and an extremely helpful woman who couldn't do enough to help us (unfortunately I can't remember her name but she helped with all the luggage and never seems to stop!!). Complimentary breakfast was really nice. Only niggle was the bar attached - you weren't allowed to 'stand' near the... More
